Celebrating Women’s History Month
March 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
Traditional histories of the blindness field concentrated on the accomplishments of a few heads of residential schools and blindness organizations, and a few inventers: mostly all male. Join APH museum director Mike Hudson as he explores the contributions of a myriad of women who added their own unique journeys to the story. Some will be familiar, like Austrian singer and composer Maria Theresa Von Paradis, and others you may be meeting for the first time, like Elisabeth Freund, who fled Nazi Germany in 1941 to a new career at her great uncle’s pioneering school in Philadelphia. Let’s hear it for the ladies, this month on Access Academy!
